In this article, you are going to find a handful of tips on taking control and moving around the Valorant’s maps. You are going to learn how to avoid detection by the enemy, how to quickly move from point A to point B, and how to use spy and teleportation skills.
In Valorant, you need to plan every move. You have to note that all the sounds in Valorant are extremely well audible. If you keep running, you will quickly be detected and eliminated. When moving from point A to point B, you should also pay attention to some other important issues.
LEARN EVERY MAP
So far, Valorant has 3 maps. Those maps are Split, Bind and Haven. Getting to know each of them well, Spike planting points, especially the names of specific key locations, the fastest escape routes, places where you are able to ambush your enemy, the best places to use control skills, and even the placement of teleports are going to make you navigate the maps almost intuitively.
Moving smoothly among the obstacles and corridors are going to give you a huge advantage over your enemy and allow you to fire from various angles. You are able to explore the maps freely if you set up your own server. Please go to the gameplay menu and then select a custom game. After that, select the appropriate map and start the game.
TAKE OUT A KNIFE TO RUN THE FASTEST
The characters in Valorant move at different speeds, depending on which weapon they use and whether they are affected by some skill which limits the character’s control. Using heavy weapons like heavy machine guns are going to make you move much slower than using a regular pistol. If you want to move from point A to point B as quickly as possible, you are going to reach the top speed by equipping a knife. But, you have to remember that moving around without a gun is a bit risky and can end up with your death.
WALK SLOWLY, DO NOT RUN
In Valorant, all the sounds created by the characters, such as jumping, shooting, spoken lines, and skills, are extremely well audible. This is no different when it comes to the sounds a character creates when they move around the Valorant’s map. By listening to your surroundings, you are able to tell whether your enemy is running on the ground or wet surface. If you want to mask your presence in Valorant as much as possible, you have to walk slowly (Left Shift by default) instead of running. This way you will not inform your enemies of your own position and will increase your chances of surprising an opponent.
STICK TO WALLS OR OTHER ENVIRONMENT OBSTACLES
As you move around the Valorant’s maps, you have to walk close to walls or other obstacles. This gives you additional protection and does not expose yourself to a shot when the enemy is aiming in a given direction.
